Fan Bingbing In Elie Saab Couture - 'One Night Surprise' Beijing Premiere

Fan Bingbing seemed to be in a very playful mood while attending the ‘One Night Surprise’ premiere held at the China World Summit Wing in Beijing, China yesterday evening – methinks it has something to do with the champagne she was seen knocking back during the event.

You won’t be surprised to see her wearing an Elie Saab Spring 2013 Couture gown.

The stunning blue cocktail dress with three-quarter-length sleeves and a tiered skirt accented with a thin leather tonal belt was lightly lined so as not to ruin the allure of this exquisite piece.

Sadly, the neon-green toe polish and champagne-coloured peep-toes with gold embellishment don’t work for me – especially considering the silver details on her dress and the silver jewels.

This is a classic case of liking everything from the ankles up.

Who Wore Oscar de la Renta Better Fan Bingbing or Jelena Ristic

When Fan Bingbing wore this Oscar de la Renta Spring 2013 gown to the Vanity Fair Party back in February, it was her third of the night following her Marchesa gown to the Oscars and her Elie Saab Couture gown to the Elton John Party.

She allowed the navy-and-white striped, strapless gown to make a statement without the bold necklace the dress was styled with on the runway, opting for a black Roger Vivier clutch and silver jewels.

Jelena Ristic also went for a statement necklace-less approach when she wore the same gown to the Novak Djokovic Foundation London gala dinner, adding a navy Bottega Veneta clutch and silver drop earrings.

The watch and the silver cuff were two pieces too many for Bingbing’s look; I really loved Jelena’s more effortless approach, plus her navy clutch was more complementary so she wins for me.

Louis Vuitton Beijing Store Opening

On Friday Louis Vuitton opened a store in Beijing, China, inviting many local celebs to help celebrate the occasion.

Fan Bingbing: As the face of the brand, Fan Bingbing was of course in attendance. The actress wore a lemon floral satin slip dress with nude Chantilly lace trims which she styled with a dove-grey LV printed coat and off-white LV ‘Alma’ bag, all from the Fall 2013 collection with much improved styling over the runway. With her style being inconsistent over the past few months, it’s nice to see her back to her effortlessly glamorous self here.

Carina Lau: The actress made her degrade Louis Vuitton Fall 2013 wrap-coat the focal part of her look with a Chantilly lace trimmed dress barely seen under her coat. While the LV sandals perfectly complement the look, the horrid grey LV fold-over clutch dominates it. Had she ditched the bag, this would’ve been my favourite look.

Qin Shupei: The model wore a Louis Vuitton Fall 2013 lingerie-inspired grey-checked slip dress with spaghetti straps and Chantilly lace trims with light embellishments, which we’ve seen twice before on Victoria Beckham, once on a shoot and the other controversially during the Wimbledon mens final. Qin styled her look with a black clutch and the same LV sandals worn by Carina and Fan in grey.

Fan Bingbing In Ashish - 'One Night Surprise' Beijing Press Conference

I received quite the sartorial startle when I saw Fan Bingbing at the ‘One Night Surprise’ press conference last Sunday in Beijing, China. The Asian star, who has shown us no shortage of eclectic looks, completely took me by surprise this time around.

After recently thinking pink in a super-girly party frock, she peace’d out in an Ashish Fall 2012 pink T-shirt dress, emblazoned on the front and the back with a hand in the V-signal. I could see Rita Ora borrowing this item.

Adding even more cartoonish, bubblegum spirit to her oversized tee were bright magenta Ferragamo platform pumps and a charming half-up, half-down ‘do.

She did seem to be having a blast in this look.

Are you at peace with the humour, or is it too funky for Fan?

Fan Bingbing In Valentino - 'One Night Surprise' Press Conference

Last time out, Fan Bingbing’s red carpet look didn’t fare so well, but she found her mojo when attending the ‘One Night Surprise’ press conference held at the Regent Hotel in Beijing, China on Friday.

The Asian beauty wore a pretty Valentino Resort 2013 pink frock with a white lace overlay on the bodice and a black satin bow.

This ultra-feminine, sugary choice is more like the Fan Bingbing I know and love; however, I have a feeling some will regard this dress as too twee for the actress.

With part of her hair pulled back, Bingbing styled her look with a pink flower bracelet and Sergio Rossi open-toe slingbacks.

Is she back to her best here, or do you have a toothache?

You may remember that Alexa Chung wore the green version of this dress late last year.
